    I agree with you on a potential early opening, and will add this point. Given that is the weekend before Christmas, and a lot of people will be out shopping anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't move it to Wednesday/Thursday to generate more foot traffic, making it an extended weekend experience (i.e. people see the movie Wed/Thurs, shop the rest of the time, or vice versa). That's also why I think it won't have an all-time best '1 day' opening, but could definitely have the best 4-5 day opening.

    Hmmm, I wonder who the woman is. Probably just some assistant but is it possible they could have taken a picture of the first cast member? Nah, I'm probably reading too much into it... but it could be... it's probably not though... ...you never know... but I doubt it... maybe... :p

    I think I can make out the words "weren't" and "crazy" but everything else is obscured by the woman's arm and the AT-AT.

    This is very true-toward the tail end of shopping season people will be out and about. Many college students are out around that time with varying final exam schedules.

    Question is: Do studios have to pay anything to release their movies on Wednesdays or Thursdays as opposed to Fridays? Is there a penalty?

    :eek: OMG! What is that AT-AT about to do to that Imperial Mickey statue? Is he about to **** on it!?! [face_sick]


    Well hopefully, or the lobby of Bad Robot will smell worse on the inside. :p

    Interesting black strips on the AT-AT. I'm willing to bet that's an Episode VII design, so we could say it's our first prop-image.

    Regardless, the angle and content of the image is very likely to be purposeful.

    I have some difficulty discerning if the above sentence is supposed to be sarcastic or sincere. It could be taken either way, I suppose.

    Correct. Hence my pluralization and lack of links. :p

    Given that there's an Imperial Mickey statue in the foreground, coupled with how rapidly designs shifted in the 32 years between TPM and ANH, there's no way I'm willing to say the AT-AT is from EpVII.

    I suspect that woman may not actually be in the film, either.

    Mickey has a Dharma Initiative symbol on his back. Could the stripes on the AT-AT be related to some other Bad Robot property?

    It's our first casting confirmation--an extra with Carrie Fisher's CGI de-aged head... shot from behind.

    Tanks really haven't changed their basic designs, since they debuted in World War 1, all walkers need is good legs, strong armor, and a flexible neck, and head. Star Destroyers didn't change much between episode two, and A New Hope, Wedge shape, and a tower. Plus if their was rebuilding after ROTJ, engineering, would be going into reconstruction, not redesigning machines like Walkers.
